The former chief inspector for the AA, Simon Wright, owns this four-year-old café/deli and wine store. “Something a bit different in this neck of the woods”“it’s the best breakfast, lunch and tea place: in fact, drop in any time and you’ll find something to delight you… but it’s extremely hard to leave without a slice of one of their fabulous cakes!”

“A great place for lunch” of a relatively “cheap and cheerful” variety – former AA chief inspector and Y Polyn owner Simon Wright’s three-year-old café/deli is also the perfect place to stock up after a tasty bite. There are “interesting wines” from small, low-intervention producers, own-label nibbles, and even a couple of rooms if you want to stay overnight.

“Breakfast, brunch… or just tea and a divine cake… what’s not to like about Wrights relaxed and relaxing Emporium!” – ex-AA chief inspector and Y Polyn owner Simon Wright’s seasonally minded two-year-old deli/café attracts nothing but praise, including for food that’s “sooooo tasty”.

“Quite a find”; one-time AA chief inspector (and Y Polyn owner) Simon Wright’s “very casual” year-old deli/café – a former pub – is “an asset for the area”. A “diverse” menu encompasses “good rustic cooking”, “an excellent choice of vegetarian dishes”, brunch options, and “the best cakes in south-west Wales”.
